Plastic eating fungi that could solve our garbage problem

According to reports, the mushroom’s plastic-devouring properties were first discovered in 2011, when a team of Yale undergraduates and their professor traveled to Ecuador for a research trip. They found the mushroom, microspora, in the amazon and were astounded to find that the fungus not only subsists on polyurethane (it’s the first plant to sustain itself only on plastic), but could do so without oxygen. That means it could be planted at the bottom of landfills and happily eat its fill of plastic for eons to come! https://www.newsweek.com/2014/12/26/plastic-eating-fungi-could-solve-our-garbage-problem-291694.html

Maximising agriculture productivity

Bee Innovative has developed BeeDar, a radar like sensor for bees which is able to identify, track and report bee pollination activity across the orchard and field in near real time. Bee Innovative then provides this critical information to farmers to help increase yield and value. Bee Innovative is also developing a real time biosecurity platform to protect Australian pollinated agriculture worth $6 Billion annually from Varroa destructor which has decimated honeybee populations around the world. Bee Innovative’s frontline biosecurity platform includes BeeID, a facial recognition technology for bees. Bee Innovative is passionate about increasing global food production and defending Australia from Varroa destructor. Bee Innovative has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Accelerate5-Teams/Bee-Innovative
